THE LIGHT IN WINTER AT FED SQUARE

This year The Light in Winter celebrates its tenth anniversary, marking a decade of warming up the heart of Melbourne at Fed Square through a combination of major light-art commissions with hearty community participation.
The Light in Winter rejoices in the acknowledgement of the contributions, made by communities of diverse cultural backgrounds, which have made Melbourne the great world city it is today. At the same time, the mid-winter festival is proud to have hosted unique installations by internationally recognised artists such as Rafael Lozano Hemmer, Asif Khan, Bruce Ramus, United Visual Arts, Luz Interruptus, Nathan Thompson and so many more; as well as the participation of local artists and lighting industry creatives.
The Light in Winter will open gently on 1 June with the annual Kirra Illuminating Glass Award (KIGA) in Kirra Galleries, and the announcement of the illuminated glass prize winner. On 2 June an opening ceremony will acknowledge the ten years of the festival and its community participants, as they are welcomed once again to Leempeeyt Weeyn’, the Indigenous Campfire which artist Vicki Couzens created for the very first The Light in Winter ten years ago. The fire will be lit that night, in the presence of delegates to the ISPA congress (International Society for Performing Arts), and will remain burning at the front of Fed Square for the whole of the Winter in Fed Square season; the sight and smell of the smoke has become a beautiful marker of the coldest months.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)

Restricted enrolment schools (Melbourne Eastern Region)

Due to facility limitations, Eastern Metropolitan Region has a number of schools with enrolments restricted in various ways. These schools are not required to enrol students outside their neighbourhood area unless they have spare places. They are referred to as having an enrolment ceiling and/or a designated neighbourhood area (formerly known as zones).  Any additional students must be enrolled strictly according to Department of Education and Early Childhood Development priority criteria. SCHOOLS WITH AN APPROVED ENROLMENT UNDERSTANDING Designated Neighbourhood Area In some instances the Regional Director may need to restrict new enrolments at a particular school and will therefore specifically designate the neighbourhood area (formerly referred to as a zone).  Children who live outside the Designated Neighbourhood Area cannot be guaranteed a place at that school even if it is their closest neighbourhood school.  The the following schools have an apporved Designated Nei
